kathleen sebelius is urging customers to shop healthcare.gov at off-peak hours, that would be mornings, evenings and weekends, and the idea of course is not to overwhelm that site. withering criticism of the initial rollout of healthcare.gov has intensified the pressure on the administration to get this fix right for saturday. the white house hopes it can do that, at least for the vast majority of users. >> and this website is going to get fixed. >> reporter: healthcare.gov opened for business october 1st and it's been a disastrous two months. the site crashed, unable to cope with people trying to sign up. small businesses still won't be able to use the site for another year. insurance industry insiders tell cnn some customers' personal data is getting mangled or even lost. the white house says the site will be able to handle 50,000 users at one time, but they admit there will be times after saturday when healthcare.gov does not function properly, and they're bracing for another possible huge surge in volume that could force some people into virtual waiting lines for call-backs. offici
